Custom field tooltip

Hi All,

I'm trying to add some help text for a custom field in create screen, which is mentioned in the link,

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Creating+Help+for+a+Custom+Field

I used below script and added to description of the "Application Name" custom field, but not getting anything in create screen.

<script type="text/javascript">
function showHelp() {
var helpDiv = AJS.$("Application Name");
if (helpDiv.length == 1) {
helpDiv = helpDiv[0];
if (helpDiv.style.display == 'none')

{ helpDiv.style.display = ''; }

else

{ helpDiv.style.display='none'; }

}
}
</script>

<a href="#" title="Application Name" onclick="showHelp(); return false;"><img src="/images/icons/ico_help.png"/></a>
<div id="Application Name" style="display:none">
Application Name - help text
</div>

Could you please suggest a solution.

thanks,

Sanu P Soman

try by adding javascript inside of this bind event

JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
//add your code here
});

check this

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/47843/strange-javascript-problem-in-create-screen

Tried,

JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
<script type="text/javascript">
function showHelp() {
var helpDiv = AJS.$("Application Name");
if (helpDiv.length == 1) {
helpDiv = helpDiv[0];
if (helpDiv.style.display == 'none') {
helpDiv.style.display = '';
} else {
helpDiv.style.display='none';
}
}
}
</script>
<a href="#" title="Application Name" onclick="showHelp(); return false;"><img src="/images/icons/ico_help.png"/></a>
<div id="Application Name" style="display:none">
Application Name - help text
</div>
});

But getting,

try like this

&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
function showHelp() {
	var helpDiv = AJS.$("Application Name");
	if (helpDiv.length == 1) {
		helpDiv = helpDiv[0];
		if (helpDiv.style.display == 'none') {
			helpDiv.style.display = '';
		} else {
			helpDiv.style.display='none';
		}
	}
}
});
&lt;/script&gt;
&lt;a href="#" title="Application Name" onclick="showHelp(); return false;"&gt;&lt;img src="/images/icons/ico_help.png"/&gt;&lt;/a&gt;
&lt;div id="Application Name" style="display:none"&gt;
Application Name - help text
&lt;/div&gt;

Now nothing showing in description, the problem is something else?
